Facesoft launches improved facial recognition technology
Imperial Innovations, the technology commercialisation partner for Imperial College London, announces the launch of new Imperial spinout company, Facesoft.
Facesoft uses proprietary machine learning models and databases to improve computer-generated 3D face reconstruction and facial recognition. The technology that drives Facesoft was developed by Dr Stefanos Zafeiriou, Associate Professor in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London and members of the iBUG group, and Mr Allan Ponniah, a plastic surgeon at the Royal Free Hospital.
Facesoft is one of the first two companies to have launched through Imperial’s Founders Choice programme, which gives Imperial academic founders more choice regarding their service package from Imperial Innovations and resulting equity distribution. Facesoft previously won the inaugural Programm/able software competition which provided initial proof-of-concept funding. Following spin-out formation, Facesoft secured an undisclosed SEIS seed investment including AISeed and several angel investors.
